View Full Version : question regarding insurance

10-08-2011, 08:27 PM

I'm using insubuy.com to find health insurance for me and my family (J1 scholar).
I was wondering why "Atlas America" does not appear on the J1/J1 search results? Are they missing some of the J1/J2 requirements? if yes, which ones?

Thank you,

We offer Atlas America plan at https://www.insubuy.com/atlasamerica-insurance/ but that does not meet the J-1 visa requirements specified by U.S. department of state, listed at https://www.insubuy.com/exchange-visitor-insurance/

Please note that J-1 visa requirements state that you must get at least $50,000 per accident or sickness.
However, the policy maximum in Atlas America is life time policy maximum. That is, if you take $50,000 policy maximum, it would be $50,000 life time and not per accident or sickness, as requried by J1 visa requirements.

I hope that clarfies.

You can purchase J1 visa compliant insurance at https://www.insubuy.com/j1-visa-health-insurance/-insurance/

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
